Nature, Undisturbed 2010 Photography Exhibition Announced


Coweta Photographers Are Invited To Enter


     Although Nature Undisturbed is a Fayette-based photography exhibition, entrants are not limited to residents of Fayette County.  Photographers from Coweta and other counties are invited to enter..  Last year several photographers from Coweta County had entries accepted and one of them, Paul Conlan of Newnan, won one of the awards presented.


     The Director of Nature, Undisturbed 2010, Donna Rosser, has issued the following news release about this very important photographic arts event:   


Nature Undisturbed 2010

2nd Annual Nature Photography Exhibition
Benefiting Southern Conservation Trust


Call For Entries - Deadline: January 30, 2010

2009 judge, Greg Newington
2009 judge, Greg Newington
Southern Conservation Trust invites you to participate in the 2nd annual juried nature photography celebration Nature, Undisturbed, which will benefit the Trust's conservation work in the Southern Crescent.

Nature, Undisturbed
April 16-April 24, 2010
Dogwood Gallery, Tyrone

Like the 2009 show, next year's exhibition will showcase the simple, yet majestic, beauty of nature, wildlife, and our local landscapes. Each unique image echos the sentiment "a picture is worth a thousand words"; a powerful reinforcement for the importance of greenspace and natural habitat protection for future generations of people and wildlife.
Amateur and professional photographers are encouraged to submit one or more nature photos in either one or both categories:
  • "Nature, Undisturbed" for photographs featuring nature in any location.
Nature Undisturbed is modeled on the very successful 7 year old SlowExposures Exhibition, held every September in Pike County. SlowExposures draws over 600 entries and attracts more than 1,000 folks each year to view and purchase quality photography. Quickly following in its footsteps, Nature, Undisturbed's innaugual year drew almost 200 hundred entries.
The Director of Nature, Undisturbed is Donna Rosser, the "barefoot photographer", a renowned local photographer and founder of the Fayette Photo Club. 
Nature, Undisturbed will again showcase locally and internationally honored photographers. Cash Prizes will be awarded for each category, and to the Sponsor's Choice and the People's Choice. Details coming soon about judges and prizes.

Woodward Academy Donates Alley Loo To African Schools


Book Written By Newnan Author C. E. Walz


     With so much disgusting stuff in the news it is a pleasure to report on some good news for a change.  Newnan author C. E. Walz, who has been in the news lately concerning her recently published award winning book Alley Loo, has announced that her employer, Woodward Academy in College Park, is donating copies of her book to schools in Africa which it has been assisting for some time.  Here is the article which Walz wrote about this great news, which can be found on her website,



                                                     Alley Loo Goes to Africa
     I've been a teacher at Woodward Academy for many years.  Founded in 1900 as Georgia Military Academy, Woodward is the oldest private school in Atlanta, Georgia.  Today it is the largest independent school in the continental United States. 
Woodward has always been an advocate of community service.  During the course of each school year, students are involved in many community service projects including one of our largest projects, Terranova School in Mazabuka, Zambia.  
Terranova School is a dream come true for coffee farmers Colin and Alison Street.  To help improve the lives of their employees and their children, the Streets built a school on their Zambian coffee plantation that was free to anyone who wished to attend.  Each year since 2001, they have added grades, teachers, and buildings until now, a school that was originally designed to teach 200 children, serves 380!
Woodward Academy has adopted Terranova School as a sister school, and in the past several years, has provided this Zambian school with books, clothing, teaching materials, computers, manpower for building projects, and even vision tests.

Coweta Author Holly Moulder At Powers Crossroads Festival


Will Sign Eyes Of The Calusa and A Cord Of Three Strands


     All published Coweta County authors  have been invited to bring their books for an autograph party to the annual Powers Crossroads Festival over the Labor Day weekend.  One of the authors who will be present is Holly Moulder from Sharpsburg, who taught elementary school for twenty-one years and who is now devoting her time to writing and promoting her books, which are well written stories for children which are helpful in introducing them to history. 


     Moulder won awards while she was an instructor -- she was twice named Teacher Of The Year; and she is now winning awards for her books.  Her first one (published in 2007), Eyes Of The Calusa, has the distinction of being the first book of fiction ever written about the Calusa Indian Tribe and was the winner of the Silver Medal In Young Adult Fiction presented by the Florida Publishers Association.  Her second book (published in 2008) was a 2009 Eric Hoffer Award Finalist and a Readers Views Readers Choice Awards Finalist.  Her books have had reviews published in various media including the Southside Arts Agenda, an electronic newsletter which covers the burgeoning arts scene on the Southside of Atlanta.  Holly Moulder is a member of the Florida Publishers Association and of the Coweta Writers Group.


     Moulder will be signing both her books at Powers on Saturday September 5 and Monday September 7.  Each participating author will set up his table near the refreshment stand which is across the lawn from the stage where the musicians will be performing.  Information about Moulder's books can be found on her website  Information on the Powers Festival is found at
